    The thing that made Ronchi's selection unlikely was Watling's good form, and Hesson painting himself into a corner by saying Watling's won't be moved. And since then, Ronchi's has continued to apply huge pressure in the selectors. Mac at 5, or Ryder at 5 in a magical parellel universe, has not much to do with it

    What you're saying is correct, Watling would need to open. You can't drop Brownlie, who was our number 5.

    I hate the way selectors make these mistakes time and time again.. "He's doing well down at 6/7/8, lets put them into a spot where we are struggling and see how they go". If they are performing in thier position, don't move them. They are doing their job and doing it well. Others need to sort out their ****.

    It's almost like BMac is looking at Watling and sayin give me some of those runs. Total bull****.

    Yeah, and he could have batted number 7 and Watling remained at number 6. With McCullum moving to no5 it means Brownlie will move to no6 and Watling to no7. No room for Ronchi.

    Anyway, a shame. He must have been putting a lot of pressure on the selectors. 4 tons this season? Very impressive.

    I agree with this, but the selectors have already said that Watling will not open, and will continue to be the keeper/batsman.

    Makes no sense whatsoever since Ronchi is actually a better keeper, from what I've seen. Would be so silly to see Ronchi play as a specialist batsman.

    Ok. Retaining Watling's at 6 makes as much sense as anyone else pretty much. If it came to Ronchi's being picked.

    Strange that would result in 3 keepers in the team. Part time bowlers would be handy.

    Has anyone noticed that our likely starting 11 are all RH batsmen? Not that it should matter if they are each the best in their position

    I watched Craig Cachopa's entire second innings v Wellington to see what prompted the round the wicket line from Gillespie. Answer nothing. But as soon as he did he had him in trouble every ball, took about 4 or 5 to dismiss him.

    Stored away since Gillespie vs. Cachopa at Eden Park possibly. Lots of really crude attempts to pull (and follow short ball king Munro's lead) that day.

    Hard to say really, Joe Carter, Brett Hampton, and Jono Hickey would all be very close, infact I'd be shocked if they didn't see any action during the comp. Clarke has fallen away a little bit, he's had a rough summer. While Vodnala, Desai and Cooper are probably a good two years away from being at that level. Seifert is playing for the "A" team during the week, just as a batsmen though. Racked up another 50 over double ton for his school last week, kid is a freak of a batsmen. Honestly wouldn't be shocked if he got a List A game this summer.

    Good news for Wellington, in that Ryder and Ronchi are likely to be back for the final round of Plunket Shield next week.

    When do we name our squad for the test series? It's obviously unlikely, but if Ronchi scores a century or something, you never know.

    The Queenstown warm-up match XII for Feb 27 will be named in the next few days. I know Jeets was looking at that match, he and his brother have had to manage his Dad's Lotto shop in Wgtn.

    Throw Taylor in there instead of Latham. He's no chance of playing, and Taylor needs to play as much cricket as possible before the test series.
